Among the features of the Pro version was a color module that fixes infrared radiation. Why it is needed in a smartphone is a mystery, the company did not really explain it, but users found an interesting feature: the camera can shine through thin plastic, fabric and glass.

The first such find was shared by blogger and concept maker Veniamin Geskin, who published how the OnePlus 8 Pro camera translucent the Oculus Quest controllers:

Journalists were able to read what is written on a note that was hidden under a T-shirt:

Of course, the feature is interesting, but who will use it? Okay, show friends and acquaintances that the smartphone can shine through plastic – and then what? Write in the comments what you think about the color module in the smartphone, whether you would use it or not (the keyword is used, that is, on an ongoing basis).
